Default Weaving a carpet

Some years ago I got the idea of trying weaving a carpet:
with my father I built a small loom and I succeeded in weaving small
pile carpets for the sake of better understating the practical
problems involved and the differences in result using cotton or wool
weft and warp as well as symmetric or Senneh knots.

I find this design http://www.azerbaijanrugs.com/anatol...museum_588.htm
extremely appealing so I decided to try to weave it myself.

This is definitely a bigger and more complex endeavour than anything I did
before: with my wife, so far, we
are drawing a precise blue print of the carpet,
that I can share if anyone would be interested.

The tricky part would be finding similar material and more detailed information
on Balikesir weaving technique: this is where your knowledge could help me.

Thank you very much
